A very simple definition of aging would be something that happens to our body over a period. We all know that it happens or is happening to all of us but the minute nuisances of how and why it occurs still are not very well understood. Aging is nothing but the impact of time on bodily changes, and it can happen at different levels. Aging affects everyone in any age group and also affects every cell, tissue, and organ in the body.
Let us have a look at the various types of aging:
- Hormonal aging- Hormones are the chemical messengers of our body that coordinate many vital functions. These play an important role in ageing especially during the growth of a child and teenage years. Once we start getting older, hormonal changes in adults can lead to menopause and changes in the skin.
- Cellular changes- Cells are the structural and functional unit of life because these entities are the ones that perform all the vital functions as well as make up the structure of everything. A cell’s age can be determined by the number of times they have replicated or undergone cell division. The damage to cells during ageing is done by free radicals and after reproducing for a certain amount of times, the cells age.
- Metabolic ageing- Metabolism is the process by which the cells continually convert food into energy. Most of the by-products of metabolism are toxic and need to be eliminated if not can be harmful to the body.
What are the changes that start taking place in the body once the process of ageing begins? With age, the skin starts becoming thinner and loses its elasticity. The fatty tissue right below the skin also starts growing lesser. Since decreased oil production takes place once ageing sets in, skin becomes drier and shows the appearance of age spots and wrinkles. At one age, maintaining the ideal weight starts growing difficult. Muscle mass decreases and is replaced by fat.
The sense organs also start functioning less efficiently as one age. One becomes more sensitive to light, develops clouded vision or cataracts. Hearing high frequencies can also become difficult. As far as memory is concerned, it starts becoming less efficient and it takes longer to learn new things or remember things. Similarly, all the organ systems tend to get affected by old age.
One of the main reasons for ageing is excessive inflammation in the body. Curcumin is nature’s answer to fight the effects of ageing due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Clinical Trial & Our Product
Since health care & medicine is an industry, formulations are controlled through intellectual property rights denying easy access to common people and maintaining the buoyancy for the interest holders.
Formula’s can be patented and that covers business interests that drive innovations these days.
So instead of conducting trials on the raw root, almost all companies promote clinically tested formulations of extracts to make it appear better then how the phytochemical was in its original state. Its like extracting an important organ from the body and then putting it on support system, expecting it to perform better in insolation then how it could perform when in it was in its natural form. The truth is, that the best way to consume a plant based medicine is in its raw form. Curcumin is one of the active ingredients in the root Curcuma Longa.
Since its more important to know what your food ate then what you ate, its important to know that the supplements you are using based on curcumin has curcumin from a gene modified variety of curcuma longa which suffers from an imbalance of every other mineral. You see a plant also behaves how a human body behaves when it is injected with steroids to gain muscle mass for body building purpose. The plants have higher levels of curcumin but all other secondary minerals found along curcumin in the plant get compromised as the plant can not feed all nutritions equally when it is designed to feed most of its nutrition towards developing higher levels of curcumin. It has severe side effects on the health of the plant and apparently on the people consuming such plants or extracts coming from these plants. However marketing and promotions have evolved to divert attention very wisely.
An extract of any herb can never be stored in its original state and hence needs base agents, preservatives which hardly leave it how it must be. We believe that access to medicine and healthcare is a basic right of every human and animal living on planet earth. Hence we do not first extract and then add preservatives or agents like pepperine to make the extract bio-available. This is the reason we never patent any of our products. We instead hand process the whole root we cultivate in our farms and share it with the people under different brand names for different health conditions based on the concentration of minerals present at testing. You can also buy the seed from us and cultivate it but it will certainly not be as potent as you get from us.
How potent is the active ingredient in the plant depends on the quality of seed, soil, water and environment. Our products work far better then most of the curcumin based supplements globally being used for Therapeutic benefits.
We do not intend to formulate or patent our products. So instead of choosing a supplement with an extract, choose wisely and go for the best and not the Cheapest.
All our products are cultivated, harvested, hand processed and distributed directly from our own farms to ensure that people who depend on our products for their acute and chronic problems get consistent supply of highest quality, ultra premium, medicinal grade, Non-GMO, Indigenous, Naturally enriched with curcumin, Wild Strand curcuma longa powder for therapeutic benefits. We cultivate this in the middle of a national park which happens to be the best breeding ground for Bengal tigers in India called Bandhavgarh.
